Linear Technology shareholders approve merger deal with Analog Devices

Linear Technology (LLTC) announced that, based on a preliminary vote tally from Linear Technology's Annual Meeting of Stockholders held earlier today, Linear Technology's stockholders approved the merger agreement under which Analog Devices (ADI) will acquire Linear Technology. Stockholders also approved the election of the seven Linear Technology directors that were nominated for election and other proposals relating to the transaction. Approximately 99% of voting LLTC stockholders cast their votes in favor of the proposal to approve the merger agreement, representing approximately 79% of LLTC's outstanding common stock as of the record date for the Annual Meeting of Stockholders. The final vote results will be reported on a Current Report on Form 8-K that Linear Technology will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The parties continue to expect the transaction to close in the first half of 2017, subject to receipt of regulatory approvals and satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Citi thinks Texas Instruments was other bidder for Linear
Citi analyst Christopher Danely points out that Analog Devices (ADI), in its S-4 registration for the Linear Technology (LLTC) acquisition, revealed a competitive bid for Linear from another party. The analyst believes Texas Instruments (TXN) was the other party since it is the only other analog company with enough size to do an acquisition of Linear's size.
